The Collaborative Research Centre 1342 “Global Dynamics of Social Policy” is recruiting: 6 student research assistants for the project "The global development, diffusion and transformation of education systems."

The DFG-funded Collaborative Research Centre "Global Dynamics of Social Policy" is recruiting students in the project A05 "The global development, diffusion and transformation of educational systems" to work as

student research assistants (30h per month).

A total of 6 positions are to be staffed. The starting date is June 15, 2018. The students will be employed for a period of three months, possibly longer.

The main task is to support the data collection within the quantitative part of the project. Documents and country reports provide historical and up-to-date information on education systems in over 160 countries. Interest in or even previous knowledge in the field of educational sociology or policy as well as globalisation is desired, but not a condition. The same applies to knowledge in quantitative methods and network research. Knowledge of languages such as French or Spanish is also desirable.

We offer an insight into an interesting field of work and a friendly team.

Remuneration is based on the usual rates for student research assistants at the University of Bremen.

The application should include a short curriculum vitae and the main focus or interests of the applicant. A current excerpt of the transcripts of records should also be enclosed.

The deadline for applications is 01 June 2018 and applications should be sent by email to
